Hello, I’m Siew and I’m a designer based in Singapore. I write a lot for a designer, and I’m happy about that.
It’s been a while since I made a not-just-a-portfolio site, so I’m testing and changing things as I go along. My requirement: easy to update with both longer content and on-the-fly ideas! (April 2019: Turns out this blog is 80% about the books I’m reading. I don’t mind it.)
I would like to hear your feedback and ideas; @rewols on Twitter or send me an email at rewols[at]gmail.com.

Things that spark joy for me
The internet, smart and useful copy, design surprises, working out a complex flow, funny ads, dog pictures, dog videos, cold weather, Japan, books, Grey’s Anatomy, remembering a forgotten idea, airports, Two Dots, Deliveroo, sashimi, and seaweed.
Things I do that surprise/annoy people
Checking in on Swarm, buying books on both Kindle and in the bookstore, taking photos on film cameras, having a messy desk, not writing cards for gifts, playing Pokemón GO, having an uncountable number of apps on my phone, and not liking chocolate and cake.

👋🏼 An experiment of sorts
I often wonder what recruiters or hiring managers or fellow designers really look for in a portfolio, and if there is any other content that would be helpful for them (you!). Please share your opinions!
